East Rand Mall: Food & Entertainment

East Rand Mall is one of Joburg’s most celebrated retail centres. Here are a handful of top eating and entertainment spots to check out.



If there’s one restaurant that’s become a staple to South Africans the country over, it’d be Panarotti’s. Head to the restaurant that’s big on family and big on pizza. Classical Italian cooking served just the way they do in Naples.

Ocean Basket

Just because you’re 600kms from the sea does not mean that you can’t have good seafood. Head to Ocean Basket East Rand Mall and get your prawns on, or enjoy a bottle of Graça with their famous fish and chips combo.

Mugg & Bean

Breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. No matter what you’re going for, Mugg & Bean has got your back. Their food’s good, their coffee’s good and it’s one of the best places to just hang out and read a good book. Be sure to try their soups as well – we’re huge fans.

Silverpeak Spur

For authentic South African and West American food, pull in to Spur at the East Rand Mall. Nothing busts the hunger quite like their ribs and wings combo. Or perhaps you’d like to try their nachos – some of the best we’ve had.


Frozen yoghurt has become the buzz around town. One of the leaders in this field would be Smooch. Try their wide variety of flavours and let us know what your favourite combinations would be. The only problem is that we can’t stop after having just one cup.

Galaxy Bingo

How’s about a night out with good food and good gaming? Galaxy Bingo at the East Rand Mall is the best place to get your bingo on. Take advantage of their awesome dinner and drink specials as well. The food is very well priced and worth the visit.


Date night or not, Ster-Kinekor at East Rand Mall is worth a visit – seeing as there are such cool movies coming out lately. Grab some popcorn, a slushi and a box of Smarties and get the show started.

Crafters Market

For the best in quirky, cute gifts and crafts head to Crafters Market and spoil yourself to something unique and interesting. If you’re into creating your own crafts then check out their supplies section and get cracking on your next creative project.
